Chris Froome Deliberately Rammed Off Road By Hit-And-Run Driver While Training

Chris Froome, the British cyclist, has been rammed off the road in a hit-and-run attack.

The three-time Tour de France winner and Olympic medallist’s bike was left badly damaged after he was struck “on purpose by an impatient driver”.

Froome said he was “thankfully okay” after being deliberately hit by the driver, who is said to have followed him onto the pavement, while training in southern France.

He posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday morning of his crumpled bike at the side of the road after it was “totaled” in the incident.

Froome, the 31-year-old Team Sky rider who lives in Monaco, said he was not hurt in the incident.

The picture was geotagged from Beausoleil in France, close to his home.

Froome’s post led to his social media followers sharing their outrage – and relief that he was not hurt:

Froome was handed his third yellow jersey in July last year when he rode into Paris after finishing a tricky final mountain stage safely.

After winning the race in 2013 and 2105, he became the first rider since Miguel Indurain in 1995 to win three Tours de France. Froome is now in training to defend his title in July.
